INOX MicroArmor Antimicrobial Coating contains silver ions that attach themselves to a microbe’s cellular enzyme to inhibit the growth of the microbe, reducing the spread of bacteria, fungi and mold. During the manufacturing process, the powder coating is applied to an INOX product and the silver ions within the coating integrate with the product itself. This enables the hardware to have 24/7, around-the-clock protection that does not wash off or wear away and remains effective in reducing the growth and spread of bacteria.

The antimicrobial technology infused in MicroArmor is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). INOX MicroArmor is also certified by the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) Z 2801 method.

INOX MicroArmor Antimicrobial Coating is immediately available as an additional option for builders and specifiers. For more information, please visit inoxproducts.com.
